As said, bases are to save expat costs, therefore don't ever expect to get a base in the future. Non expats may be entitled to bases now but don't bank on it in the future, expect to be in HK your whole career while with CX.

When you apply, do you have to have finished your schooling/passed the required subjects, or can you apply beforehand as if it's going to take around a year for them to organise an interview, is is worth applying early?

I would say no as they invite you to an interview based on exam results etc if you have no flying background. How could they consider you if you have not got the minimum requirements? You may not pass or do as well as is required to make the grade for a 1st interview. They will not waste their time with the application as they have more than enough from people with 0 experience.

I got declined at stage 2 in Hong Kong, but a tip for people who are still in the process they won't give you any feedback if you fail, so know your own strengths and weaknesses. If you want it bad enough you'd be more than preapared to go the extra mile to brush up on everything you know. In addition seriously consider whether you can cope on the salary provided, people don't bang on about it here just to put you off, it's a long term career decision if you want to commit...

That's the problem.... Nobody is considering the long term effects of such a package.

aviation maths test

Hey everyone.

So throughout this whole blog, people have asked what's the new aviation maths test. It used to be called numeracy test and quick subtraction but what does this new term mean? If anyone has experienced it, pls let us know, we would highly appreciate it!

IN brief, what does the new aviation math test constitute??? Thank you in advance...

Mate,

You've asked the same question 3 times already, as well as PM'ing me with the same question twice. Please read the post earlier which answered it!!!!

Oh and to answer all the people that keep asking why I would like to join a company which will give me a crappy package. Well it's quite a simple answer for me, I'm currently being paid 400 a month in my current flying job, being worked pretty much 8 hours or so a day (flying time that is) not to mention all the time waiting to fly. I would take any job at the moment and if I can survive on 400 a month then I can certainly survive on CX's SO contract. All these people with a job don't realise how lucky they actually are.
